Another Bareback Set

I’m so creative with my post titles, aren’t I? >_<

Anyway, yes! I finished up another bareback pad today… I think I posted an in-progress shot of it not too long ago. But it’s got a girth, and a halter/bridle combo to go with it now.

This set is a donation for the Central Coast Live Show in Australia this May.

I built it mostly on a Lady Phase (she’s a good go-to model for tack fitting) so it’s a bit too big for the PAM, but she’s so cute in tack isn’t she? I couldn’t resist dressing her up for some pictures.

Bareback and Bitless

I managed to finish the bitless bridle…

I felt like something was missing though, so today, I put together another bareback pad:

The pad was a lot more fun than the bridle.  I’ve already got a few others in the works!

Anyway, I’m pleased with them both. 🙂

Playing with Fire

Yes.

I discovered a while back that if you pierce a piece of ribbon with a hot needle you get a nice, sealed hole, perfect for tongue buckles.

I have too many ideas but not enough motivation/supplies to start anything new, so I’ve gone back to fixing up older things I made several years ago. This is for a bareback pad that needed some simple repairs on its cinch. I had attempted to make a tongue-buckled cinch but it never worked, as the holes were simply poked with a needle and “sealed” with glue. (oh Fraycheck I’m so glad I found you!)

But now, the cinch has a nice row of not-perfectly-straight-holes that finally serve their purpose and keep the pad tight on the horse.

It’s a shame I totally messed up the cinch when I first attached it though. Not only does it buckle on the wrong side but it’s upside down as well. And I can’t get the glue residue off either, dang it. >_<

But all in all, I am still pleased with this pad and hope to make another later on.
